Plaza Garage: One Lane In, One Lane Out

A note to Plaza Garage parkers:

Beginning Monday, May 21, and ending Friday, June 8, the Plaza Garage will be undergoing necessary structural repairs. To accommodate these repairs, a temporary change in daily garage operations will be necessary. Entry and exit will be done through one lane only. This will be managed by 24/7 traffic control within the affected areas in the garage.

The ability to use the garage’s revenue control system will not be possible; therefore, all patients and visitors must adhere to an $8 cash-only flat rate due upon entry. University-issued prepaid or chargeback vouchers also will be accepted upon entry as payment. All patients and visitors with alternate forms of payments such as credit cards, debit cards, or checks must park in the Baltimore Grand Garage or the Penn Street Garage.

During this time, there will be areas within the Plaza Garage that will require spaces to be taken out of service. This, coupled with the temporary operational changes, could cause delayed entrance and exit with the possibility of the garage becoming full more frequently.

To address the issue of redirecting permit holders because of the garage becoming full or having delayed entry and exit, the Office of Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) is offering a limited number of parkers the opportunity to relocate temporarily to the Penn Street, Saratoga Street, or Baltimore Grand garages.

PTS will handle requests on a first-come, first-served basis. To request the relocation, please email your parking liaison your first and last name, permit number, and preferred garage selection (Penn, Saratoga, or Baltimore Grand). PTS will confirm by email when we have switched you to the garage you chose.

When the structural repair is complete, your liaison will notify you when you must return to your home garage.

Electric vehicle spaces also will not be accessible during this period. Alternate electric vehicle spaces are available at the Baltimore Grand, Pearl Street, Pratt Street, and Saratoga Street garages.

Monthly Parkers

To obtain entry to the Plaza Garage, all monthly parkers must have their hangtag clearly displayed on the dashboard or hung from the mirror at all times while the vehicle is in the garage. Vehicles that do not display a monthly permit will be charged $8 upon entry. Refunds will not be given.

If you have lost or misplaced your parking hangtag, please visit our cashier’s office located in the lower level of the SMC Center at 621 W. Lombard St.

Debit Card/Pay Daily Parkers

Due to the revenue control system not being available during the construction project, all parkers participating in the debit card program will not have access to the Plaza garage. Any pay daily parker wishing to park in the Plaza Garage must pay the $8 flat rate upon entering and will not be eligible for a refund.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
